- There are a lot of popular search queries for which there aren’t articles matching the search query keywords. This means people are still no able to get information which they searched for. When articles matching the search query keywords aren’t found, Google starts removing certain keywords from the search query to match more documents and your website may appear in some page of the result. Hittail basically looks for these scenarios and provides you the original search query so that you can write a article on it and be on top for that query.
- Sometimes Google displays your website for a particular query result because it found keywords on the page. But still you don’t get visitors because your page didn’t get on the top page or top rank. Hittail suggests you keywords which you should include in your in your title to improve ranking.
